• Vivid Video is suing PornoTube over copyright infringement. I never thought I'd say this, but I hate you, Vivid Video. [Ars Technica]
• Facebook Beacon isn't only invasive and potentially embarassing, it may also be illegal. [Boing Boing]
• The BudCase stores your ear buds on your keychain. I need this, and for $15, I may just get it. I can't count the number of times I've forgotten mine and had to talk to people on the subway when I could be listening to my tunes. [product page via Red Ferret]
• Navizon released a free version of their iPhone GPS application on Installer. Sure, it may be a county or two off, but who's measuring? [Navigadget]

I like porn - and piracy is not cool. I have to give Vivid big props for actually standing up to AEBN to stop pirating Vivid's films with their promotional vehicle, PornoTube. If you actually read the article on [] you'd see that AEBN uses PornoTube to get people to go to their site using adult film studios' copyrighted works, and not giving a dime back to those companies who had to deal with all the costs of producing the film. Vivid actually spends serious money on their performers and films, and 2257 record keeping is not cheap.
